2014-02-04 12:25:04 - Finland - Telecoms, IP Networks, Digital Media and Forecasts - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
Finland´s telecom sector revenue fell steadily from 2006 to 2009, affected by the poor domestic and regional economic climate. Since 2009 the sector has stabilised, showing slight growth tempered by the effects of competition and regulatory measures and encouraged by the slight growth in GDP which is expected to continue at about 1% into 2014. Almost half of total turnover is derived from the mobile sector, while a third is from fixed network operations.
Finland´s unique telecom sector pits the main players DNA, Elisa and TeliaSonera against a group of regional co-operatively incumbents operating as the Finnet Group. The geographically fragmented fixed-line market has made it difficult for alternative operators to establish and run their businesses nationally. Early deregulation has resulted
in one of the highest levels of internet use in Europe. The mobile sector is equally vibrant, with penetration above the EU average. In common with other European countries, Finland has also taken steps to develop a national fibre network to future-proof the country´s requirements for telecom and IP-delivered services.
On a national level, the government and regulator have targeted a national fibre or cable network enabling 100Mb/s connections across the country by the end of 2015. The regulator is aiming for 99% of the population to be within 2kms of a 100Mb/s connection. Public funding in fixed-networks has helped finance smaller operators. Fixed-broadband is being supplemented by mobile broadband based on LTE, which is now widely available.
